    Breakfast was fantastic. I opted for the in-room dining option as the view from my room over the river was very relaxing and nice to look at while having my tea, porridge, fresh fruit, poached eggs, toast, etc. Great selection and all very good quality ingredients.

    Although the Ice House was a pleasant enough stay, having stayed at other 4 star spas in Ireland and elsewhere around the world, overall I found that it was not worth the hype or the costs. The foyer and room is impressive upon first entry, but the reception staff were all consistently very cold and abrupt and gave you the 'icy' feeling that you were interrupting their day and an inconvenience by merely showing up. The kitchen and bar staff were much friendlier and welcoming but clearly overworked as it took them a good 10 minutes to acknowledge and seat me after my reserved time slot. But I dined there on two evenings and the food was fantastic and staff very friendly and conscientious and paid much attention to detail. The spa facilities such as the thermal cycle are nice and well kept but very minimal. The outdoor area and hot tubs are lovely with a calming view of the river Moy, but unfortunately it is not private and you occasionally open your eyes to see a pedestrian or group of people on the pavement above looking down and gawking at you in your swimwear. This layout of the facilities is puzzling and does not lend itself to serenity or privacy. Another case in point: the restaurant patio overspills below the rooms and I was startled one evening while getting dressed to hear screaming toddlers below my window running from the restaurant. The hotel is child friendly which, although beneficial for families who are travelling and for some reason want to take their kids to a spa hotel, it is distracting and disturbing for guests who simply want quiet and to relax without the sounds of screaming kids. It's like the Icehouse is trying to be too many things to too many people all at once and needs to refocus on who is its main clientele.

    Relaxing in the thermal spa and enjoying outdoor jacuzzi and sauna with a river view

    Music in restaurant a bit obtrusive
